Researching monarchy and coronations in BBIH
On the occasion of the Coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla, we created two new BBIH online reading lists focusing on the history of monarchy and coronations in Britain and Ireland, the first one covering the period up to 1485 (Medieval monarchy – 375 publications), and the second one from 1485 to the present day (Monarchy, Tudor to Windsor – 606 publications).
The lists specifically covers:
- “Succession, royal”, a subcategory of Monarchy (within Political, administrative and legal history)
- “Coronations”, a subcategory of Ceremonies (within Other topics)
Professor Philip Murphy and Dr Emily Ward each wrote an accompanying blog post on the IHR website:
- Medieval Monarchy in the Bibliography of British and Irish History (BBIH), by Dr Emily Ward
- Monarchy in the Bibliography of British and Irish History (BBH) : the invention and reinvention of royal ceremony, by Professor Philip Murphy
